Storm chaser on Typhoon Haiyan

Storm chasers are used to running towards danger. But Haiyan is one of the strongest storms to ever hit land. What it left behind is devastation on a scale that that's hard to imagine. Storm chaser James Reynolds described the screams "we could hear them over the roaring of the storm and breaking of glass." He also described jumping in the water to help save typhoon victims.

    Watching CNN now. WHY are there 10 rescue workers moving rubble from one point to another when there are still people missing/buried? There are areas that have not even SEEN one rescuer yet...I am at ground zero and wonder WHEN the aid that has been given, will get DONE in the sorting process and out to the people who NEED it. You rightly said, its Day5 and many people think the world has forgotten them. President Aquino, you said there were millions ready to be spent...WHEN????????

    I was just listening to your interview with fellow correspondents comparing disaster relief efforts with Japan. You seem to forget the issue of capacity. A first world country like Japan has the capacity to begin to deal with these disasters while the Philippines as a developing nation under normal times is stretched to deal with local needs and is overwhelmed in a disaster situation.

    Thanks thanks thank you Anderson for covering an event so worthy of the worlds awareness. While other concentrate on the broken American government politics and partisanship, you're at the front lines helping the unfortunate.

    Just curious, can you in the media take some of the relief aid? Or maybe you already are?

    Somethng just does not sit well with me. The Philippines is a neighbor of Japan, Korea and Vietnam & Australia. Why are they not helping in the relief effort United States is the only one that cares?
